Can anyone confirm what that article says about AEG selling its share of the stadium rights to Red Bull for 50 mil? Does anyone have a link to another article confirm the above or something?

Cuz to me that would be huge maybe a sign that they might bosst capacity to 30k and get ridd of the stage end liked discussed in a previous thread!
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

That was part of the original sale, nothing has changed. Speaking of nothing changed, why do I feel like I have read that piece before...is it because there is a "Soccer Team Suffers Stadium Setback" article every year. Ugh, what a joke.

Time to scrap these NJ plans and build in NYC. Queens has some good land. :) Right by the 7 train.

Yeah, so anyway. Next.


I don't care anymore. If they get it done and they have to pay more to get it done, then it's too fucking late to pull out now. Harrison can't afford to eat this and if it costs them more in the short term to get it back in the long they're going to have to come up with someway of doing so.

It's going to be my future residence when I get the fuck out of the South so I'm interested howeva they figure this out.

Additional foundations; delayed till 2009 -- we knew that weeks ago.

Wait till the soil is delared unfit for future us of any kind to throw in the towel: this property is permanently condemned.

It's not that there's any new and shocking information there. 2009, or something like it...we knew that already.

But I can't see any reason why the writer repeatedly emphasized the precarious nature of the financing for the stadium, why he underlined the fact that the plan was for the stadium and garage to generate money to pay off the debts rather soonish. Can I.
